Tender Breaded Turkey Cutlets

Tender Breaded Turkey Cutlets

Tanya Belt

"I came up with this thinking of a different way to serve the turkey breast. The sour cream seals in the moisture and no one would ever guess that it's in there. A great new way to try turkey. This is my husband's new favorite turkey dish."

I have never tried baking these but I never feel guilty about pan frying them since they are pan fried in just one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. The last time I made them (two days ago) ...

Kudos to the reviewer who suggested the dijon mustard. I added it to the sour cream (about 2 tsp. and it gave it a real zing. Yum!

Thanks to some other reviewers, these were a real success. I mixed up sour cream, a little mayo and a little dijon and spread it on both sides of the cutlets... let them sit in the fridge before...

A very different way to prepare the turkey cutlets. Although my breading fell off with the first three cutlets the fourth one came out very nice and crunchy and I think it's because it didn't fi...

Excellent flavor and very easy. I used reduced fat sour cream mixed with 1 tsp of herbed dijon mustard. Also, I did not have seasoned breadcrumbs so I mixed in 1 tbsp of italian seasoning with p...
